What we're about
We are NOT a beginner MTB group! You should be at least intermediate skill and fitness to keep up with our ride pace. There are other MTB groups more suited for beginners and riders getting back into shape. Consider us the "Black and Blue Division" of Utah MTB Meetup!
We are a good group for people who are looking for riding partners, since a lot of folks don't like riding alone (I don't!). We keep our groups smaller to minimize impact on the trails and with other trail users. We also do this to tailor the ride levels. In this group, we rate rides based on technical difficulty, AND a separate rating for fitness. Rides will have distance and vertical feet estimated, so you can gauge if it's something you can handle without killing yourself, or being bored.
Also, we recommend that our group members use Strava (a free phone app), so you can use it to track your progress, and to see how you "match up" with members of our group.

Note that we are NOT a group of hard core ex-racers who normal folks like us cannot keep up with, riding "Race pace" every time out. We are also not the group to join if you are a beginner! We are somewhere in the middle, and know how to ride hard, but sometimes we also like to smell the flowers!
If there is a ride you want to do, even if it's a ride you haven't done, but want to, feel free to contact us and we'll see if we can put it on the calendar.
